Greyhaze Records is set to unearth Bloody Vengeance, the 1986 full-length debut from Brazilian death metal pioneers Vulcano. Formed in 1980, Vulcano is thought to be the first band from Brazil, and possibly South America, to play extreme metal. An early influence for the likes of Sepultura and Sarcófago, Vulcano’s primal blend of black, thrash and death metal sparked a flame that quickly spread across the mid-80s underground metal community.
Bloody Vengeance is being reintroduced to a new generation of metalheads. Fully remastered and restored, the album is accompanied by a DVD that features a live performance from the 1986 Festival Da Morte. Greyhaze Records will reissue this cult classic as a six-panel digipak CD/DVD on May 18.
Vulcano will celebrate the reissue at this year’s Maryland Deathfest. The MDF set will be the band’s first-ever live performance on American soil. With no other U.S. dates in the works, MDF XIII looks to be the only chance to experience the madness that is Vulcano north of the equator.

This sounds promising. Short reminder: a few weeks back Century Media reissued Pyrexia’s “Sermon Of Mockery”. It includes the “Liturgy Of Impurity” demo and the “Hatredangeranddisgust” EP.
Oh my. Thank you for alerting me.
Wow that was an amazing album. Arguably better than Sarcofago.
I’ll have to take issue with anyone that says this is better than Sarcofago. Vulcano is pretty good metal of its time, but Sarcofago and Sepultura were revolutionary at their peaks. I can imagine death metal and black metal sounding the same if there was never a Vulcano or a Sextrash or a Chakal, but those genres might never have developed if not for the two biggest Brazilian bands of the ’80s.
Caveat: Every band mentioned in this post is excellent and worth listening to. Sarcofago and Sepultura are just more influential and innovative.
First war metal album
Cover design looks like something from South Park tho
This is a re-mastering from the actual vinyl. I heard it and it sounds really scratchy and no where near the sound quality of the original. Be warned.
